Hey Shibu,
Thanks so much for bringing in all Team bhpians and your other friends. Truely you were the bonding factor that brought all of us together.
It was nice meeting Shiyas, Jeep George and couple of others. Could speak to Designation and see his camper performing

@Milecruncher- Hyderabad will have 2wd vehicles.
@Iron wolf- Unfortuately in cities there arent many 4wd's, hence not possible to make every event only for 4x4


Overall a great event guys, had nice experience with you all. See you in Ooty

The photos do give some hints about the massive no of 4x4s present in the event and also about the trail. And with JeepCaptain in the forefront things must 've been really well organized .

Its nice to see pics of your Camper on the trail. Its been a long time since you have posted any updates in your thread. Why not revive it and put more details on the recent activities with the Camper.

Jeevan, I take this oppurtunity to Thank you and my fellow Bangalore Bolero Club Guys who came all the way from Bangalore to attend this event and make it a big success.

There were six members from Bangalore Bolero club and 4 teams.

Looks like MGEs are now moving into strictly 4x4 mode? I hope this is the case.
Is the upcoming Ooty one a strict 4x4 only event?
Ritesh, It was a moderate trail. But since it was in Waynad. It was indeed a Great Escape for all the 40 4x4 Jeeps.

Karumbaiah, It was great meeting you and your wife and friend in Waynad. Yes yours was the oldest 4x4 in that event. I think we should have announced it there.Sorry man. I was too busy and didnt get time to check out your Jeep.

Vinod, It was great meeting you in Wayanad. Though we didnt get time to catch up.It was a great event and please keep next years event also in Wayanad. Me and my friends there have already started searching for more trails for you for the next years event.

I dont know whether you noticed I had a 2 Jeep Participation. No. 7 Green CJ3B and No. 31 Sand Colour MM550 XD.

And there were 12 Jeeps who came to attend due to my personal invitation. Which means 12 Jeeps out of 40 participant Jeeps was my contribution to MGE and I am really happy to support you, MGE and Mahindra in this way.

What more I can do for you as Jeeper buddy when such an event happens in my hometown for the first time which is organized by you.

Soumen
, There were 40 participants and about 15 officials & support vehicles which makes the total number to 55 4x4 Jeeps. There were so many bhpians also attended. Atleast 15 team-bhpians were there as far as I know.
I was not organizing it.That credit goes to none other than Vinod_Nookala. I was just co-ordinating with friends and to bring everyone together and to have maximum participation.
